Aging Patients:
Fall Prevention and Infection Control Challenges

Two of your biggest fears...

It's no secret that as we age our bodies become more fragile and the ability to heal is prolonged. That's why falls and infections cause great concerns. One event can have significant effects that lead to rapidly declined health, extended hospital stays, and extreme financial and emotional implications for patients and their families.

But that's not all... assumptions tied to high reports of infections and falls can be detrimental to a care facility — economically and psychologically.

In this self–paced online course, sought–after presenter Jennifer Cellar, MSN, APRN, CPN, and award winning expert William Inman, BA-BS, CIC, will guide you step-by-step through evidence-based interventions and prevention strategies you can implement into your practice TODAY!

Walk away with realistic, efficient, and effective algorithms to address falls, understand when to use an influenza vaccine, overuse of antibiotics and its implications, and practical solutions to a variety of “what if” infectious disease scenarios.
 

Learn to PREVENT falls and infections before they have a chance to diminish the lives' of your patients...

TOP 10 Geriatric Syndromes (PDF Download)
This book will present many of the expected changes caused by normal aging and the Top Ten Geriatric Syndromes elders experience. These syndromes are a cascade of problems in an elder’s health and revolve around vision and hearing problems, elimination issues, dizziness, falls, and cognitive impairment including delirium as well as dementia (such as Alzheimer’s disease). For these reasons, providing healthcare for older individuals with Geriatric Syndromes can be complicated due to elders’ multiple conditions or diagnoses i.e. (hypertension and diabetes and arthritis) and multiple medication usage by many in this age group.

In addition to providing a guide to care that is concise and in an easy to utilize format of treatment strategies; the author discusses the differing presentations of illnesses in elders and encourages the utilization of strategies which are age-appropriate.

Topics include: Falls, Sleep , Pain, Eating problems, Confusion (dementia/depression) , Incontinence, Anxiety, Living abilities (Activities of Daily Living-ADLs), Skin Integrity Issues and Elimination Issues.
